Client feedback

​Mike is a great secretary. He does a really good job for us.
Clare Cairns,
Campden BRI Group
​I would recommend them to anyone - I have dealt with a number of other independent trustee firms and would rate PSIT as the best. We are very happy with Mark and the service we get.
Julia Morton,
Camellia plc
The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.
Paul Coley,

​We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian and Kerry react to us and work with us is brilliant. We are very happy.
Katherine Breading,
​They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.

PSIT was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.
